General Use WMA Permits
Who needs a General Use WMA Permit?
Anyone 16 and older who is hunting or trapping on any wildlife management area must have a General Use WMA Permit code on their license. The permit is free. It is an extension of the former Sweet 16 Program.
What is the General Use WMA Permit used for?
The AGFC is using this permit to determine exactly how many people are using WMAs and will be able to survey them directly about the WMAs they hunt and their experiences and satisfaction on those WMAs. It does not extend any additional privileges to the hunter.
